A lady contacted us to visit her after an attempted burglary. She had an audible alarm system fitted in her house. this had gone off when the intruder tried to climb through a window that was left unlocked. The intruder fled.
Because the property was protected by an alarm system, we only fitted a door chain and a spyhole. We also gave advice about the unlocked window.
Crime Prevention Tip : Burglars do not like alarm systems. There are audible or monitored systems. Always get at least three quotes, ask friends who have alarms installed and use a company registered with the National Security Systems and Alarm Inspection Board or National Security Inspectorate.
